Royal Jelly Antioxidant Activity May Prevent Cell Damage

Royal Jelly Peptides Inhibit Lipid Peroxidation In Vitro and In Vivo
Journal of Nutritional Science and Vitaminology, Vol. 54 (2008) , No. 3 pp.191-195

Summary: Royal jelly peptides (RJPx) isolated from hydrolysates of water-soluble royal jelly proteins prepared with protease P exhibited significantly stronger hydroxyl radical-scavenging activity, and antioxidant activity against lipid peroxidation, than did water-soluble royal jelly protein (WSRJP) in vitro...

Serum total cholesterol (TC) levels were lower while low-density lipoprotein (LDL) and LPO were significantly higher in Group Fe than in Group C. TC and LPO levels were lower in Group Fe+R than in Group Fe.

Our data suggest that RJPx may inhibit LPO both in vitro and in vivo.
